by the shippers, they pay taxes and fees in the anticipation that those dollars, those revenues are going to be used to service our ports. the problem is it hasn't been used to service our ports. they are paying money into a fund, the last 15 years that has run a surplus. there is $17 billion in the fund and they sit back and wonder, why isn't this money being used for its intended purpose, which is to make sure that american ports work. we paid for it. we've agreed to pay the taxes. now do government what you promised us to do to make sure that we can actually have commerce in our industry. i think it's important the gentleman from pennsylvania talked about the corp. of engineers talking about studies and our shippers having a light load and the great lakes' ports and lake superior, the twin ports, where they are unable to load at full capacity because we haven't effectively dredged that port. and that is loss of receive news for our shippers and that is driving up the cost of the goods that we are shipping on the great lakes, which means the end consumer is paying more for those goods.

that increased government spending does crowd out private spending. it's -- you know first of all, more taxes haveo go to fund the government and the governme is in there doing jobs that private industry could do. number two is as the government shrinks, you know, the private seor comes in and is enabled to grow. look, i think people are opt mistericic that the public sect is shrinking because as jim pointed out, every dollar they spend, there's no multiplier. in fact, a lot of studies christine believes that for every dollar spent, you get 95 cents back t to gdp. so think this is a all a good ing. i think there's some cause and effect there. i'm just happy that the public sector is shrinking at this point. >> and you were referring to the former economic adviser president obama? >> yes, thank you. >>> do you see a connection between private sector hiring and the government handing out pink slips? >> look, the connection is that if we were in a really strong economy with really low unemployment, not unemployment above 7%, yes, you could make the government is government is sucking up labor. y

francisco and property taxes, it's over $1 billion a year. and we receive significant revenues from the business taxes and sales tax and hotel tax as well as other local sources. also important to know that about one out of every five dollars that san francisco spends comes from the state and federal government. when the federal government does things like implement a federal sequester. that has an impact here on san franciscans. if the state budget changes, that has an effect here on us. it's important to know that we have control over some of our revenue but not all of them. the mayor shared with you our five-year budget outlook. and mentioned the first two years. this is the fourth chart over with the red and black. the red bars show you how much our expenditures are projected to grow in the next five years and the black bars. we project over the five years we will have 13% more revenue, it's a strong economy. and at the same time our expenditures are expected to grow by 25%. so the gap between the growth in expenditures and revenue is what creates our budget short falls. a signi

not be long before we had that dirty letter word, value added tax nell neil some of the underpinnings for it, to your point, is this idea that the underpinning is falling apart. not enough young people are signing up. they were going to bet u buttress this. low wage americans cannot afford it. the uninsured aren't sure they want to be part of this. so there's no one paying into this and delaying the employer provision that would be a big chunk of the money ain't there. so you have to tax. you have to do something. you have to hit up people like you or whatever. >> by the way, even if the employer provision had not been delayed, neil, one of the things that a lot of employers were saying i'll pay the $2,500, and i'll put my employees in the government-run exchanges, and it's cheaper for me but more expensive for the taxpayer. i believe also we move -- if we move forward with the implementations of obama care, thick at some point there will have to be some extra cash and the reason i predicted a value added tax, this is something we saidle at the wall street journal, if you want a european sty
. these are the premium tax credits which will make care affordable to millions of lower and middle income americans expanded medicaid for lower income americans, which in spite of the supreme court's decision will still extend medicaid coverage to millions, provisions that protect americans from pre- existing conditions from being denied insurance or being charged premiums. the individual responsibility provisions that asks americans who cannot afford health insurance to purchase it. and finally, the employer mandate which requires large employers to offer affordable coverage to the full-time employees or risk facing a tax penalty to offset the cost the public will incur of covering employees. 95% of employees with 50 or more employees already offer this coverage. but this mandate is there to encourage employers to maintain or expand coverage. on january2, 2013, the treasury department announced it was to line for -- delaying for one year the reporting requirements. treasury encouraged businesses is morning, and i think we heard from businesses this morning that they needed more time to comply bec

of july. >> thank you. i would point out the irs tax system is an honor system. at least the irs uses $10 million a year to enforce the honor system. the claim that the administration has been starved has no basis. in fact, the hhs used $8 billion to create out of thin air a bonus program for the medicare advantage, to postpone the cuts before the election. i wonder if they would like to have that $8 billion back now that they are claiming they don't have the ability to implement. >> can i add on to that? >> sure. with respect to the first question about the attack system being an honor system, certainly some parts are covered by reporting but many parts are not. and i would remind you that congress repeal the 1099 requirement that is supposed to take the small businesses away off the honor system with respect to the reporting purchases of goods of more than $600. and they projected the loss, $22 billion of the revenue by putting businesses on the honor system. the tax gap in the united states in 2006 was estimated to be $385 billion of uncollected taxes. those taxes were on collected bec

given the proposition ends that supervisor avalos mentioned, trying to increase the tax rate this tax is progressive and is dependent on the amount of churn that we see in the commercial market. it assumes that level of activity we have seen in the last year will continue in the next two. we are actually updating our transfer tax estimate as well as part of the updates on the board on things that may have changed since the budget, we are expecting to see weakness in that. nothing leads us to revise budget year estimate by the budget generally assumes continued strength. >> i know harvey rose -- looking at the legislative analyst report the president chiu, and the board of supervisors on revenue and expenditures i am wondering if you could comment on the potential risks a supervisor breed said, digging into the budget stabilization reserve or other reserves. what are the risks involved? >> we can provide more information on this. the city does like everyone else, goes through economic cycles, revenue cycles up and cycles down. proposition a and the policy that followed
act as kind of a tax on the productive part of th economy. so the less they do, the less people they have implementing these confounding rules and regulations, the less -- the better the private sector can work. so i think that, again, you see a shrinking of the public sector, you're going to see the private sector really tak off. >> sasha, wa do us about that? >> at the end of the day, somebody doesn't hire a new workers because of what the government is doing in terms of the sequester. they're hiring a new worker because the profit mgin that they're going to get out of it is worth more than the cost of the new employee. so it's not about the government. it's about the housing market doing better, consumer confidence up. >> so you think that that government can throw to any kind of level and it won't slow down the economy? >> there's no -- it's a really fferent argument than we're talking about. >> but we're talking about the flip side, though, as government strengths will the private sector grow. i make the argument that it does. >> and i'll make the argument that at this poin

don't have the exchanges ready when the individuals are either going to be taxed or fend for themselves, that puts the revenue in the stream without another major portion of the law being enacted, and it's wrong, and it's contrary to the way we're supposed to do business in a country that abides by the rule of law. neil: all right. so in the house it doesn't look like this thing has much of a chance right now as far as making the same push. maybe it does. but is this law on automatic pilot? i mean, because you always hear these daunting numbers. it's very, very tough to change a law already in place however unpopular, however enormous. what do you say? is. >> well, that's what we knew all i a long. -- all along. in the senate, yes, it's tough. the house, i think, is voting on doing away with the individual mandate even as we speak if you'll flip over. but, basically, what we -- my best hope, neil, is that we can defund the irs enforcement of in this. that's the one part of this law that has to come back before the appropriations committees each year for additional money,
individual mandate tax. republicans in congress believe this is unfair as such. senator thune spearheaded a letter to president obama which i enthusiastically signed urging him to permanently delay the whole entire law and treat individuals like he's going to treat businesses. i'm glad that it's been put over for businesses, even though i question why it was put over for this next year. why not do it for the individuals who are suffering from it? if it's good for the goose, it should be good for the gander. shouldn't the obama administration give the same relief to everyone? furthermore, i might point out that we've always known this law was a budget buster. with the employer mandate delayed, i joined with a group of republican committee leaders in the house and senate asking for the congressional budget office to get us an updated cost estimate of the bill. i can't say what c.b.o. will find, but i have a feeling that obamacare's price tag will continue to soar, and it's already off the charts. everybody knows it's an abominable bill. and that includes democrats as well. mr. president, wh

of becoming healthy food retailers. initially the idea was to let's look at perhaps tax breaks to create a safety net for those businesses, that see a drop in income after the first year of embarking on this path. we looked at that with the tax assessor's office and we looked at that with the city attorney's office and frankly, it's just not -- it's not a benefit that would benefit as many of the businesses as we would like because of the change in the city's tax code. a lot of these businesses are not going to be paying that much in taxes anyway. so in its stead what we decided to do was offer a three-year commitment on the part of oewd and the department of public health so if a business starts on this path and runs into problems those departments and all of their services will be there for a minimum of three years to ensure that technical assistance will be there for them all the way down the road until they achieved the goals that they set out for themselves. as i said, we have been working very closely with both city departments, as well as community members. today we are going
the tax code, getting out of empire criminal wars of aggression and so on. so when i say it's easier than you think, it isn't just a hypothesis. historically in our country the greatest changes for justice have all started by one or two people almost by definition. the women's suffrage movement, that famous meeting in an upstate new york farmhouse, six we can in the 1840s. the abolition movement, the civil rights movement with rosa parks and a few other stalwarts. time and time again the sit-down strikers in flint, michigan, to form the united autoworkers in the 1930s. time and time again it has been proven, the whole farmer populist revolt started with a few farmers in east texas in 1886, '87, spread all over almost the entire country outside of the more eastern seacoast. again and again we have these heroics, but we don't learn from them. we don't learn from them because most americans have given up on themselves. they have rationalized their futility. that's easy to do. and they make excuses for themselves as to why they can't show up at a town meeting or even show up to vote locally o
we get our revenue sources. the largest being property tax, it's about 32% of our overall revenue, over a billion dollars a year in san francisco comes from property taxes. we also receive a significant amount of our revenues from business taxes, hotel sales, and other local taxes. another important thing to know is about one out of every $5 san francisco receives comes from the state or federal government. so, when the state and federal government makes budget cuts, things like the federal sequester, those soon have effects here as well. the next chart over is the one with red and black. that's showing you our five-year budget outlook. and part of the reason we're here to talk to you today is to really hear from you about your priorities in the context of a situation where our revenues are growing, but our expenditures are projected to grow more quickly. so, over the next five years, what that chart is showing you is we project our revenues to grow about 13%. during the same period we expect that our expenses will grow by 25%. and, so, that gap, the gap between the 13% in revenue
. how many times can you talk about tax cuts, taxations, regulations and too much spending? i sink i am in no position -- to think i am in no position to call for a fight. i think the basics, and you have to say it in a way that is appealing and there has to be much more outreach to the people we're trying to our reach. hereic cantor will be during a panel. what would you say he should advise his caucus in candidates to talk about in the next election? fundamental, a previous decision you have to make. the question right now is does the republican party need to motivate the coalition or modified? you always have to motivate your coalition when you go into an election. that is necessary. the question is whether they need to modify in significant ways? i think there are good reasons they need to. generational change. calls of governing vision that includes everyone. reach to even people you know will not agree with you. it is the reason we were involved in the campaign in 2000 when one of the president's first speeches by president bush he specifically criticized the idea that there is no
to be hit with the tax inside of obamacare. could you explain that to us more fully than just one or two paragraph response might give to the american people? >> sure. one of the new funding mechanisms for the the affordable care act is the new tax on private plans, which falls on those private medicaid plans as well. so you have a perverse dynamic the federal government on one hand taxes itself and at the same time taxing at a -- states to raise revenue. states need to come up with the money or cut services for individuals to pay the taxes. >> explain how that works. i was not here when the bill was passed. i was under the improtects it was on the wealthier people and on plans that were private plans. is it because some states have or work with private-type plans to provide the coverage for their citizens? >> this is not the tax on cat lack plans. >> okay. >> this is a different tax that essentially a premium tax for plan -- private plan, private health plans. but those private plans within medicaid are including within the tax. and that tax over the next decade is going to raise costs

those who have the money give more of it via higher taxes. taking and spending other people's money is what barack obama likes to call our shared commitment to each other. and americans agree with him. at least enough of this agree with him to elect him as president last year. unpleasant as it is their reality is always difficult to convince people to say no to free money. it's always difficult to opt for the uncertainty of free markets and free enterprise and to walk away from government subsidies. i may have emerged from that ghetto without having received welfare benefits but it was purely an accident. if i had known that welfare programs existed, and that my parents qualified for those welfare programs i would have brought them myself to the relevant government offices, filled out the application, served as their translator and interviews with nameless bureaucrats and at age 10, 11, 12, 13 whatever it was i would have made sure they got some free money. i never had to do an event in oakland but certainly like other poor people i had friends and family who did avail themselves to

on this path. we are not a country that can afford to allow into our nation immigrants who are going to be tax consumers rather than tax producers. when you have the pick of hundreds of millions of people around the world, we should be smart and we should have a smart immigration policy that brings in people who are going to be tax producers. not tax consumers. that's going to help us with our deficit situation, tep us with our accumulated debt, and hopefully reduce or minimize the risk of an american tradgity that tragedy being a debit dating insolvency and bankruptcy of our great nation system of in that veen, our foreign policy, our immigration policy should focus on those who are going to come here and produce more revenue then they're going to consume. i'm for allowing immigration into the united states of america. it's a cherished privilege, it's a historical fact of our country, but that smart immigration means that the people we allow into the united states of america need to bring wealth with them. if that's going to help produce more in tax revenue than they're going to consume. we n
